Moving vehicles and 2-3Km apart... I think you're asking a lot of the technology? You might be better using walkie-takies or similar kit; much like (the not so common nowadays) CB radio etc.?

Radio Shack may have something useful in that regard; similarly Best Buy and even Amazon..? I'd be a little cautious about BB though as more than a few find their warranties and after sales support less than ideal. They seem to have a very short period for returns with money back - compared to some others?

As trvlr states, WiFi is intended for only comparatively short distances:

If you need to communicate between two distances that far apart, why not just call or (much less desirable while driving) text....

Shades of truckers/cb movies, macho movies (pre cell/mobile phones)... might have triggered the thought?

Personally I feel any kind of remote voice (or video) communication by anyone actually driving is surely to be discouraged.

2 way radios seem to vary enormously in quality. Many are sold as little more than toys... If you can test out slightly better models you may find one which will do all you require?

Televison crews, riggers construction crews, etc. often use 2-way radio systems; but they do use a professional style/spec'd model - as otherwise they'd be wasting money, and time - and possibly rising lives too. If crew members are a distance apart they need reliable comms. So perhaps look more professional kit?

Pro stuff requires FCC license for a specific frequency for a specific area. That is one of the reasons communications are clearer and more reliable. We use like this at work, retail for communication from selling floor to stock, etc.
